London Gamers: Places to see in London?

So, I'm going to London for a short time period and I've been hitting the internet hard for information on places to go and stuff to see but there's so much stuff out there that it's kinda hard to land on something in particular.

So basically, is there any game-stores that carries retro games? Where would I go to find albums on vinyl? Anything I need to see in general? Etc etc :P

My band is getting ready to release an album

Edit: Wow. I totally forgot to update this.

Since January, everything has been back and forth to get everything ready for release but it's finally out. The album is on Spotify, iTunes and Amazon MP3. We've been doing some touring in Sweden and Finland and are about to do some shows in Norway so we're keeping ourselves busy.

Thanks to everyone who has showed support through this thread. You guys are really awesome.

and I'm fucking excited :P

We've spent a bunch of money and time on our first album so hopefully it'll do well. I really want the chance to make another one because we've started to pinpoint the style we like after recording the first album and all the songs we've made for the next album are hundreds of times betters. plural!

We've put out a couple of songs on YouTube for people to listen to.

My month in games: April

This month has been awesome for games. For only being halfway over, I've gotten a bunch of new games.
Well.. New isn't exactly the right word.
 
So, what did I get? Let's start with something from my last blog.

 Mine? My own nes? O,o
For free (!!) at work:
  • Perfectly working (I mean perfectly) NES, with all wires + 2 controllers
  • The old-school Zapper before they made it signal orange
  • Ice climber (CIB)
  • Gumshoe (CIB)
  • Zelda II: The adventure of Link (CIB) Crappy looking box and manual though
  • Gremlins 2 (CIB)
  • Solstice (CIB)
  • Super Mario 2 (CIB)
 
Now that's awesome for being free. heck, it's awesome for money too. I had actually just ordered my first NES when I got this :P so I went from 0 to 2 NES :D Still haven't gotten the other one yet.
 
 Too much money spent :|
  • Secret Service (X360) Haha. It was damn cheap but damn crappy.
  • Dead Space (X360) All ready had it for pc but I wanted to play it on my xbox. still haven't gotten through it.
  • Silent Hill: homecoming (X360) me and a friend is going through it. Not as scary as the first one ;)
  • Warriors Orochi 2 (X360) Interesting. I like to relax with these kinds of games from time to time.
  • Advent Rising (XB) Still sealed. Don't really plan to play it either. Also very cheap.
  • Metal Gear Solid 3 (PS2) about time I got this one.
  • Persona 3 FES (PS2) I wanted to try it and randomly found a Norwegian store that sold it and then I saw:
  • Persona 4 (PS2) Damn you endurance run for getting me to using my money :S
  • Samurai Shodown (SNES) I wish I had a neo-geo :|
